Diabetes Resources

The School Nurse Advisory Council (SNAC)​ updated a document that was created last year titled “School Nurse Diabetes Management Checklist” School Nurse Diabetes Management Check List to assist the registered professional school nurse with providing a guide to “evidence based practices (EBP)” in school nursing relative to diabetes management.  The checklist notes various strategies in the following areas:
 
Nursing Assessment and Data Collection
Nursing Diagnosis/IHP/ Goals and Outcomes

Implementation
Evaluation
